Hey guys, I'm making fondant covered cupcakes tomorrow for young children, I was wondering what the taste difference is between MMF and the boxed wilton stuff and rolled buttercream? I'm not such a fan of fondant in the first place (I usually take it off my slice) so I would like to do something that actually tastes yummy lol.

I don't know about rolled buttercream but there's little difference now between boxed Wilton and mmf - I was shocked that Wilton now tastes pretty darn good (tasted absolutely disgusting previously) It seems to be a lot easier to handle than mmf and I think if I had an important cake to do (like a wedding cake) I'd use 1/2 mmf (because it's so cheap to make) and 1/2 wilton fondant (because it helps improve the consistency of the fondant - makes it lay...heavier...on the cake so less air bubbles and lumpinessicon_smile.gif)

hmm.. in my experience MMF dries a bit softer than Wilton so it may work better for kids to bite in to
